Walking is an incredible tool for self-improvement. It’s become one of my favorite tools. I’ve gained more benefits from it than meditation, breathwork, and even journaling.

You may find walking to be immensely beneficial, just as I have. Or you may find it to be mediocre. Everyone is different.

Regardless, give walking a chance. Try it out for a few weeks before making a judgment call. It may change your life.

I know because walking has changed my life. It’s reconnected me to nature. And it’s helped me gain mental clarity.

Today, let’s talk about how walking can provide these 2 benefits for you, too.

Explore nature

Humans were built to live in the wild. Every single species on Earth was built to live this way. But as our ancestors learned to harness fire, create stone tools, build shelter, etc., they began to take control over the wild.

Humans domesticated the world.

Now, don’t get me wrong here. What our ancestors have done has created cushy, comfortable lives for us… And I’m not complaining. It’s incredible how we get to live inside homes and have amenities such as clean drinking water, smartphones, etc.
